Developing Teaching Skills in Music Performance
30 Sep 2018
Morning - Show Some Emotion: Teaching Expressivity in Music Performance
This interactive session focusses on the teaching of expressivity in the instrumental classroom, and offers thorough descriptions and explanations of suitable teaching approaches and techniques which can be used to successfully facilitate this often overlooked area of music education. These strategies will be demonstrated through live teaching sessions involving both instrumentalists and vocalists, which will exhibit how musicians of all ages and from all musical backgrounds can develop an individual understanding of performance, together with the support and guidance of their teacher.
Afternoon - Are you listening? Developing aural skills in your pupils
As a cornerstone of musical development, possessing strong aural skills enables much more than a successful mark in the final section of a graded music exam. This session will explore a range of structured techniques and approaches to encourage the effective development of aural skills. Applicable to all instruments and all styles of music, be prepared to get actively involved in this engaging session.
